Continuing its Alberta Spotlight series, join the National Music Centre as it presents Kent Sangster’s Obsessions Octet with opener, La Mosca.

The Obsessions Octet was founded in 2005 by jazz saxophonist Sangster and his wife, Joanna Ciapka-Sangster, a classically trained violinist. Born out of their long-held desire to make music together, this group is the most innovative, ambitious, crazy, and satisfying project that they have undertaken to date.

Combining an elegant blend of classical, Latin, and jazz elements, hear works by Astor Piazzolla, Chucho Valdes, Cole Porter, and a collection of Kent Sangster’s original compositions.

Catch Kent Sangster’s Obsessions Octet on May 18, 2018 at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre (850 4th St. SE). Doors open at 7:00pm with the show at 8:00pm.
